    This is a one-off chance to purchase the rarest and most wonderful of all civet products: 12 year aged 2% tincture of wild Abyssinian civet. Most civet today is farmed as it is now under CITES protection, but this Fraterworks tincture was created prior to that. As a consequence this is one of the finest forms of Civet tincture you will ever experience. Compounded with the fact that it was made with food-grade alcohol batch made in New Zealand and you have a treasure of perfumery past. 

    Our wild civet tincture has the typical characteristics of civet but due to age it is mellow and rich.  Additionally, because this is a wild harvest, it is imbued with the incredibly profound scent of the wild glory of Africa herself.

    NOTE: there are some ambiguities around the US customs position on the import of civet to the US. We are happy to take the advice of our clients so if you add this to your cart we presume you are aware and are giving us the green light. We ship civet and other high-odour products in sealed unmarked silver foil bags to prevent cross-contamination in the even of leaks or parcel damage.

    General Information

    Like most suppliers and makers of quality raw materials for fragrances, we do not filter many of our products. This ensures that no odiferous matter is lost prior to use but can result in the appearance of small particles or slight clouding.

    All alcoholic fragrances should be macerated for up to a month and then chilled in a moderate freezer overnight before being filtered fine. This will remove all cloudiness or detritus and is the industry norm.

    Beautiful, smooth, animalic material

    This lovely tincture manages to capture both the slightly cheesy/barnyard animalic scent of civet while also creating a velvety an luminous texture to whatever you blend it with. So lovely with florals!

    I spilled it

    Unbelievable stuff. Smooth yet tenacious too. I should know. I knocked it over and spilled half the bottle 🤦‍♂️ hahaha


    Beautiful civet note with sweetness. I use it with floral notes
